Lucky hunters who are selected for any deer permits will be announced this week.

On Friday, September 7, Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife officials will select hunters for any deer permits. The privilege allows the permittee to hunt antlerless deer, or bucks with antlers less than three inches in length.

The winners will be posted here. Note that this link will not work until the drawing.

If you're selected you need to write down your corresponding any-deer permit number. It's suggested you keep that number with your hunting license so it's readily available when needed at a tagging station. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife no longer mails transportation tags or physical any-deer permits.

If you're awarded a bonus deer permit you need to pay the $12 permit fee by mail or in person before receiving your bonus permit.
